The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. The views and continental breakfast were great. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning worked well. You do start to hear alot of nature throughout the night which made it difficult to sleep and there is no wi-fi in the cabins. If you are looking to unplug, this place is amazing.

4/10 Fair

This is actually a lovely property, quiet and relaxing in the shadow of the Arenal Volcano. My issue is that I was double charged for my stay at the end of March. I was a single traveller booked for 3 nights. On my second day, the hotel staff asked that I do them the favour of relocating for a night to another hotel close by. They offered the compensation of a night for this. I agreed, packed up my stuff and walked over to the other hotel, (it was almost the same property and apparently owned by a sibling). Then i packed up my stuff again and relocated back to the Montechiari. I had to check out early as I had an early transit. The receptionist hadnt arrived yet, so it was the owner (as I was told) who checked me out. I was told there was an additional charge of 90 dollars (USD) that I had to pay. I paid in cash but she couldnt find the reciept book. And then my transportation arrived and i had to leave. I had pre-paid through Expedia, including all taxes and I had not outstanding balances. I tried to solve this with Expedia, but after weeks, Expedia was told there were no additional charges. My best guess is that I was charged the fee for the other hotel room and for doing Montechiari a favour when they overbooked. Its unfortunate, it could have been a great experience, but it was soured by the hotel's staff/owner trying to cash grab. Just a cautionary thing to be warned about when booking with this hotel.

10/10 Exceptional

This property was more than I expected as it was one of the cheapest rooms I could find on Expedia. The breakfast was actually good quality food, something I looked forward to each morning. Way better than the hotel breakfasts that I am used to in the US. The rooms were private and cute, although the rooms are standalone cabins, the buildings are made of a thin plywood/veneer so you can hear people outside if they are there and there is no insulation. The AC is moderately weak, so if it is hot outside, and the AC Is on inside, it will still be hot inside. We caught a red eye and stayed here the folllowing night, we tried to take a nap during the day in our room and it was too hot to nap. However, this property is perfect if you adventure during the day and simply come back at night to sleep as it cools off dramatically .

The property was within walking distance to the city, which made it easy to access additional activities in the area. The breakfast was wonderful! The room itself was clean and comfortable.
